Nil Battey Sannata is Uttar Pradesh slang for good-for-nothing. The good-for-nothing here is Apeksha, a 15-year-old girl living in Agra. The film’s emotional centre is the relationship between mother and daughter. They are friends but also foes who compete and fight bitterly. It’s a sweet story that debutant director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari tells with a light touch and a lot of heart. (Anupama Chopra)
